2018 was a recovery year for the Alberta economy, but not necessarily for brick and mortar board game stores. Regardless, we had another solid year for the EBGL, with consistently high attendance numbers and a new record for "maximum number of players" at a single event for the 3rd year in a row. As always, huge thanks to our primary (gold) sponsor: Mission: Fun & Games for supporting us!
2018 Fairy Tile Domination Tournament Results!
Nov 03, 2018
This year, due to poor weather and road conditions, we only had 15 players enter the EBGL's 2018 Fairy Tile "Domination" (single elimination) tournament on November 2nd and, as always, only one winner emerged...okay two if you count 2nd place.
Congrats to veteran gamer and game store owner, John E(right) for winning first place and Edward K(left) for winning second place after just 3 rounds.
Both John and Edward walked away with some nice gift certificates to Mission: Fun & Games; however, John elected to donate his winnings back to a random attendee who had not won a game that night - thanks John! Also, congrats to Shawn L for winning the door prize!
As always, thanks to all of our members who brought or purchased copies of the game and brought lots of snacks!
